Colorado Dem Congressional Delegation Joint Statement Ahead of RNC

Today, the Democratic members of Colorado’s Congressional Delegation (U.S. Senator Michael Bennet, Congresswoman Diana DeGette, Congressman Joe Neguse, Congressman Jason Crow, and Congressman Ed Perlmutter) issued the following joint statement ahead of the Republican National Convention this week: 

“This week at the Republican National Convention, President Trump will offer more empty rhetoric that will do nothing to contain the coronavirus or give relief to the American people. Missing from the GOP events are the voices of Coloradans hurt by Trump’s failed leadership, who are wondering how they will keep their loved ones safe, pay their rent or mortgage, and put food on the table. Instead of working to develop bipartisan solutions to meet this moment of crisis, Trump and the Republican Party have put politics above public health — cutting unemployment benefits and pursuing a relentless crusade to overturn the Affordable Care Act, an action that would rip away health care coverage from hundreds of thousands of Coloradans right when they need it the most. 

“Four years ago, Colorado voters saw right through Trump’s empty promises, and they will reject his failed record this November. Colorado families deserve a leader who will turn the page on Trump’s chaos, protect and build on the ACA, and help us build back better from this economic turmoil—not someone who governs by Tweet and inadequate executive orders. That leader is Joe Biden, and when he and Kamala Harris are in the White House, Colorado families will have a President and Vice President fighting for them and for a better future for our nation.”
